One Health Wednesdays highlights work in One Health to encourage awareness, solutions, and professional development. Daniel Williamson is an infectious disease epidemiologist and medical entomologist who has focused his work and research on researching and surveilling mosquito-borne diseases. He discusses how he became intrigued with microbiology and pathogens and has fulfilled both of his childhood dreams of discovering a dinosaur and working with infectious diseases. Daniel highlights how his research has reinforced the principles of One Health and AMR, even detailing mosquito life cycles and how pesticide-resistance mutations occur. He continues to develop surveillance and prevention in mosquito- and vector-borne diseases through his partnership company, Arbo Scientific, and through his research with the University of Arizona, all while supporting local public health in Arizona.
